We understand that visiting a church for the first time can be a little daunting. As you visit a new community of people you could be wondering a variety of things. However, we’d love welcome you. So, please come with all your questions and we’d love to try and answer them. Our hope is you will find this to be a place you can be comfortable from the very first moment you meet us.
As you plan to visit with us on Sunday you may have questions like: What is a church? Where do I go? Where do my kids go? What will the music be like? What is the teaching like? What will people be wearing? To help you, we’ve tried to give some brief answers to most of these things below and you can also check out our short video on what a typical Sunday at Terra North Adams feels and looks like.
There is ample off-street parking at 2 primary City lots. The first is behind our gathering space, which is the same parking lot behind Public Eat + Drink and Mountain One Bank. From this lot, you can follow the Terra Nova signage and enter through the building’s main corridor. Additionally, directly across Main St is another large City Parking lot.
4 Years - 8 Years
Our Terra Kids classrooms are located at 85 Main St, Suite 105. This is next door to The Green [link “The Green” to www.thegreenNAMA.com] (from where adult worship takes place) and is connected via the concourse within the building. Currently, we have volunteers that run a Sunday program for children from 4-years old to 8-years old during our 10am service.
For children under 4-years old we have a toddler play room set up within The Green that parents are free to bring their active children into. This room is not staffed with volunteers currently and is parent observed.
Checking in to Terra Kids
We take the safety of your children seriously and we utilize a computer-based check in system called Planning Center to help us. If it’s your first visit, you’ll want to give yourself an extra few minutes to check your kids in properly. After your first visit, it will be much easier and quicker.
All of our volunteers are background checked, screened, and trained as well. If you’d like more information on our TN Kids policies and procedures, please email Pastor Dave.
Next to the toddler play room in The Green is a private nursing room which is available for mom’s who may want a quieter and calmer space for nursing their little ones.
Help Us Launch Terra Youth
At Terra we love our role of coming alongside families in partnering with parents by helping to equip them to be the primary influencers in their children’s spiritual development.
We believe our youth are a vital part of the church and we want to provide venues where they can grow, serve the church and their community, while journeying together in faith alongside their peers.
As a brand new church plant, we are developing our Youth Programs in North Adams. We are dreaming of ways we can do this, including possibly partnering with other local churches.
To grow this ministry we need men and women who have a passion for investing in the next generation. Please email Pastor Dave with questions and find out how you can help.
